About Republic of Pie
Inspired by European culinary excellence and the warm inviting appeal of reclaimed wood, metal and glass similar to a Northwest cafe, Republic of Pie + Coffee has found a home nestled in the heart of the NoHo Arts District. "The Republic" was intuitively born from a love of baking, a passion for coffee and a strong sense of community.
